Publication Date: 2019
Published By: International Federation on Ageing
Description: In June 2019, the International Federation on Ageing (IFA) brought together a group of Canadian experts in influenza vaccination and public health, alongside leaders of ageing and at-risk patient organizations to identify opportunities to help build capacity and influence vaccine-related policy across Canada. Barriers such as misinformation, diverse vaccine schedules, limited vaccinator gateways, and cost must be addressed to maximize the return on investment of adult influenza vaccination, resulting in healthier older Canadians.
